[Bug 173890] Re: flashplugin-nonfree fails to install... new version?

This was a Kubuntu 7.10 install done just the other day, updated, then
firefox was installed. I had installed the flashplugin-nonfree package
and noticed the md5 error message and firefox didn't have a flash plugin
visible so it didn't work and the drop down info bar or whatever it's
called under the address bar was there for me to click the button. I
can't reproduce this now, I only get the url that goes to the macromedia
site do download and install so I don't know what allowed me the
'normal' way to get a missing plugin with firefox.

Regardless I still don't think it's proper to update a package and break
working systems. Mike Melanson of Adobe seems very receptive on mailing
lists so perhaps he could be contacted by the maintainer and help to get
a working copy of the flash plugin hosted by Adobe to allow the original
package to work again?
